Play your Mirror self
For the first time, players will be able to play the Mirror version of their own characters in the featured episode, “Red Shift.” The announcement explains the details:
Captains will join Terran forces led by Marshall Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) to kidnap a person of great importance from Jupiter Station in Federation space. They will be joined by Captain Killy (Mary Wiseman), the Mirror version of Ensign Tilly from Star Trek: Discovery. The game’s newest season follows their story from the perspective of Admiral Janeway from the Prime Universe, who is retelling the accounts of their actions.
More new features
“Shadow’s Advance” also celebrates Star Trek Online’s 12th anniversary. Since launching in February 2010 the MMORPG has been played by millions of Captains from around the world with 25 seasons, featuring over 750 starships. To celebrate this milestone, the devs have brought back the Omega Molecule Stabilization mission, a fan- favorite event which tasks players with stabilizing Omega molecules which Q has scattered throughout the galaxy. Participating in this event along with numerous episodes and TFOs associated with Mirror Universe, will unlock this year’s anniversary ship, the T6 Jarok Alliance Carrier.
Today’s season introduces a brand-new five-captain space TFO called “Iuppiter Iratus.” Players will need to assemble a team of five and stop the Terran Empire from stealing data from Jupiter Station.
